Is it good for your lawn to cut the grass without a bag on your mower?

    If you let the grass clipping fall back into your yard, your grass will retain all nutrients and/or fertilizers.  See graph below:

    Leaving grass clippings on your lawn is a great way to recycle nutrients back into the dirt, as well as a more efficient way to mow the lawn. Because you’ll be turning the mower on once and maintaining a relatively even speed throughout, you won’t waste gas on starting and stopping the machine each time the bag needs to be empty. In terms of nutrients, leaving grass clippings on your lawn can fulfill up to 25% of the fertilizer needs of the grass—they recycle nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium back into the dirt. If you remove the clippings and want to keep your lawn healthy, you’ll have to get these nutrients elsewhere. The other nice thing about clippings is that because they contain so much water, they decompose very quickly and help speed up the nutrient cycle.
